Price bars are smoothed by cubic spline fitting using least square method.
The indicator has just four input parameters:
- LF transmission width 1/(2*Period) – sets the LF (low frequency) filter transmission width
- Number of delay units in the filter – must be an odd number, thus allowing the filter control Taps prices that enables it form the new smoothed MA value
- Window index – defines the filter approximation using five distinct ways
- Horizontal shift of the indicator in bars – defines the indicators’ level shift gauged in bars
